Jennelle Crothers’ Presenting on Extending Your Datacenter to Azure with Virtual Networks and PowerShell at Next SITPUG Meeting
The next Seattle IT Pro User Group (SITPUG) meeting will be held on May 13, 2015 at Microsoft’s Civica Office in Bellevue. The guest speaker will be Microsoft’s Technical Evangelist Jennelle Crothers. The topic of her presentation is “Extending your Datacenter to Azure with Virtual Networks and PowerShell.”
You might love your on-premises datacenter and the GUI tools Microsoft has provided since the NT 4.0 days but the cloud is here to stay and it’s sometimes easier to manage the cloud if you leave the GUI behind. Learn how you can use a VPN to connect your datacenter to Azure, or how to create your own test lab in the cloud, then use PowerShell to create and manage Virtual Machines (VMs) from your desktop.
Before joining Microsoft, Jennelle spent 15 years as a Systems Administrator. Now as a Technology Evangelist for IT Professionals, she speaks to members of the IT community about what’s new and cool with Microsoft technologies. Jennelle has received the coveted Microsoft MVP award 4 times. She is a Microsoft Azure Specialist, MCITP, MCSE for Server 2003/Messaging, and an MCSA for Windows 8.
